2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #25

Hello and happy Sunday. I was wasting time yesterday and neglected my round-up duties, but while Mr Guylty is out to look at an exhibition today, I thought I’d quickly jump in here and put the round-up together. More reading material for you with chapter 23 of Miss Fortune by middleearthpixie Oh, interesting! Here is…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round up #23

Hello hello hello! It’s been three weeks since the last round-up. An update is overdue, especially since I already returned from Germany a week ago. I missed last week’s round-up because I was wrecked from a delayed return the night before. Thunderstorms in Munich delayed my departure there so that I only arrived into Dublin…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #19

Hello and excuse the delay please. I currently have my mum staying with me, and this morning we ventured out for some shopping. I have now sent her into the garden with Mr G, so hopefully will have half an hour to get the round-up compiled. Starting off with a fan fic. This is middleearthpixie’s…

RA Pocket Shrine 273/? – Lavender

The “5 Item Challenge” has had *just* the effect I have needed. Thanks to the pressure of improvisation, I have felt inspired to get down to shrining. Kate’s challenge items were responsible for shrines 266 and 270. And in round 3 of the challenge, which was opened to new participants, I received an envelope with…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #14

Very fittingly for a long Easter weekend, I will have a bumper round-up for you today. At least I hope so. After all I missed last week’s round-up due to travelling. Let’s see what happened in the meantime… I hope you have had your first cup of coffee this morning, because starting off with this…

Happy Easter 🐇

Is it premature to wish a happy Easter on Good Friday? Well, in any case, it looks as if my fingers are itching and I can’t resist getting back into blogging mode. On Sunday, my Social Media break will be over. In all honesty (and with all due respect) I can’t say that I *overly*…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #11

It’s been a good long time, but yesterday I was back volunteering at MoLI for the first time. It was almost strange to be in there without a mask hiding half my face, and speaking to the visitors also felt way more personal. I got such a buzz out of chatting to a young American…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #8

The world as it is today cannot go unmentioned even here in this ‘happy place’. With Russia invading Ukraine, war has become tangible in Europe. I am old enough to feel catapulted back in the times of the Cold War. Even though I was a child back then, I was keenly aware of an ever-present…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #7

Good day to you. Hope you haven’t been blown away by Storms Dudley and Eunice. Northern and Central Europe got a bit of a battering these last couple of days. Ireland as usual gets the first hit of the storms, coming in from the Atlantic. We had the whole yellow-orange-red scale of storm warnings in…
